Hello from Ibiza, Spain! I arrived here yesterday and still fighting a bit of jet lag, but the island energy is taking care of me. I’m here for a Yoga training with 2 of my favorite teachers who have inspired me for over a decade. The training is on the theme of the elements, it couldn’t be more perfect given that we just shifted into Autumn. I’m excited to explore the body, mind, and yoga through the lens of the 5 elements. We started today with the Earth element, the ground beneath us, the flesh and bones within us, and theContinue Reading >>
Summer has officially come to an end with the Autumn Equinox marking the first day of Autumn. Last night I threw on an extra blanket and turned off the fan.

And I’m back, day 3 of my August monthly experiment to write and publish a daily blog post. I’ll include these short intros each day to offer an update about how this entire experiment is going so you have an insiders perspective. Why?
